I have a 24×18 oval again vinyl liner pool new this summer. 2 weeks ago I slacked on maintenance and algae built up a bit on the bottom (No chlorine) but water was still Chrystal clear. Once I vacuumed the pool all **** broke loose with dark green water. I been shocking with lots of bleach and quickly killed the algae but haven't made any progress on the blue cloudiness.
my cartridge filter been cleaned and it doesn't seem to be collecting anything. The pressure doesn't change.
Anyways my cya levels were non existing so I bought a 4 lb bucket and read somewhere that my pool size (12 gallons) would need about 6 lb to reach 40 ppm so I went and added the entire 4 lb bucket.... yeah I'm way over 100 now (just received by k-2006).
My questions are should I / could I cover the pool as is? Or should i drain off half and refill to lower cya and work until water is clear?
PH is 7.6 FC is 20 (shocking) CC is less then .5 and CH is 70-80 TO 60
